To be hornest, I am not clear how the DVD system works. Is the DVD
like a CD, the module need be loaded, then be mounted to a file
system? I guess that UDF fs is the file system for the DVD. I more
concern with the DVD formats for different DVD RW devices. Are the
different formats DVD-R and DVD+R only presented in physical device,
not on a file system? As long as the device is mounted to a file
system such as UDF, there won't be any difference to read contents
from the file system, is that correct?
